This concert was magnificent! The musicians were of the highest caliber, and it was evident that they really enjoyed performing together. The program featured not only beautiful orchestral music by Mozart and Strauss, but also included performances by two wonderful opera singers and two excellent dancers. There were even some light-hearted moments woven into the concert as well, which made the evening truly delightful. Initially I had been disappointed to learn that the performance that evening was to be held at the smaller venue of the Vienna Konzerthaus rather than at the Imperial Palace, but as it turned out, the more intimate setting proved to be even better! I had purchased the higher priced tickets, and we arrived before the doors opened. Since the ticket voucher did not contain seat numbers, we were shown in and asked if we wanted to sit in the very front row! What a thrill that was! No one should miss attending a classical concert while visiting Vienna, and this is truly one of the best!

A great night and well worth the price. About 400 people in the theatre and the orchestra and soloists were great. Unless you're a fanatic, there's no need to pay for the more expensive seats.

If you are new to classical concerts as we were this is a great introduction. A selection of, primarily Strauss and Mozart, with excerpts from opera, ballet, concertos, waltzes. polkas, etc. in an amazing concert hall.

An excellent evening's entertainment - a well-balanced programme nicely executed by the professional orchestra and vocalists. Viator process for ticket purchase was straightforward - I opted for the self- print voucher to be exchanged for tickets on the night. Good level of organisation at the venue - ushers polite and helpful. Overall, what's not to like?

Casual and very enjoyable evening. The conductor and orchestra made you feel like they were having fun while creating a memorable evening of classical music and opera. This is the second time we have done this concert and we would do it again.

Music was beautiful. Gave us a chance to visit the Imperial Palace too.

A very pleasant and enjoyable evening spent listening to a small orchestra with singers. I think perhaps aimed more for tourists than any discerning classical music lover but entertaining all the same.

It was not what I expected. I paid extra money for seats towards the front. We arrived 30 minutes early as stated, however the seats in the front were occupied. The seats were general admission and up front upgrades was false advertisment. The venue didn't showcase the dancing. We couldn't see any of the dancing other than their upper bodies. The music selection was a disappointment. Gunshots, anvils, and whistles are not what I want to hear when I attend an orchestra concert in Vienna. This concert is not the one to attend if you are looking for an elaborate musical composition from the orchestra.

We showed up for a tour 17 taxi plus the lost fees for the tour and were sent away because we did not have our passports in our possession. On the 3rd page, in the middle of the third paragraph, without emphasis/bold type, instructions to bring your passport was listed. We lost the money for the tour, were away from the hotel early AM and not too appreciative of you or your vendor for slipping in this tidbit like lawyers with the fine print. I doubt we will utilize your services again as you are a go between and a careless one at that. For your info, we have already begun planning our trip to Scotland and have not looked your way for assistance.

This concert is not for any enthusiast of fine orchestral music - too much touristy junk.

My local ASO is much better.

not worth the money
